Recommended Posts

Awesome new track from Don Vedda, a really cool cover of the Tove Lo track Talking Body.

For those of you who have never heard of Don Vedda he is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who has also studied guitar, piano, and voice, with a deep understanding and appreciation of all types of music, including rock, metal, pop, R&B, blues and jazz. Don’s debut EP, released 8/13/2014 (recorded and produced by Brian Grider in Los Angeles CA), is a collection of 6 compositions that are a sonic-boom hybrid of these styling’s, each with a unique identity all its own.

Prior to launching his solo project, Don Vedda performed with Jaime’s Elsewhere, Casino Madrid, Oceans, and most recently as lead guitarist for Republic Records recording artist, Dev.

 

His 2014 EP comes highly recommended and worth getting, some tracks from it.

Nice, that 'Love at First Sight' is really cool. Would be great to be a multi instrumentalist. Even though most of the songs here are in the modern hard rock vein, there are still glimpses of his versatility on display here. Good stuff.

Very cool. I like this plenty. Not sure why he hired Billy Ray Cyrus as his barber for the 'Love at first sight' clip, but it does not work, at all. Lucky for him the song does.

I actually haven't been able to get this song out of my head since I heard it. I have no idea what a Tove Lo is or how the original song sounds, but I love this version. My "it" song for the moment.

Just saw a random note that apparently this fella has an album called 'Hell of a Night' to be released on 1st of September. Mega excited about this one.

I have been meaning to google this guy to see where he's at, so thanks for this post. I am such a massive fan of this chap. The musical tightness of all his songs - tight production and his passionate delivery... it's all working for me. That 'Hell Of A Night' song will be sitting up somewhere high in my lists this year. I dig the other two too.

very very nice indeed. I'll go even further and say that's the best modern rock I've heard in at least 5 years.

I dig it. muchly

Brilliant. When is this album due for release? I need something to play alongside the sole other good release of 2018 so far, in LeBrock.

Top quality song. If this thing ever gets release, it's going to be definite top 5'er, I'd assume. Just wish it'd actually happen.

Killer song. If I'm being honest, it's kind of "cheapened" by that filmclip. I don't understand the significance of it to the song at all. Looks like a clip for a party song or something... not this one. Bad blend, but excellent song (again). Where's the goddamn album?

I've basically got the 7 singles Don Vedda has released over the last year in a playlist on Spotify - if he releases this lot on an album it will be no 1 for me. every song is killer. 

Just love this Dude. Best modern rock since the demise of Destine imo

I just did that today - put the seven songs in a Don Vedda folder for my 2018 playlist too.

Yep, only thing that comes close to LeBrock so far this year.

Well the albums out. Appears to be digital only which is not surprising tbh. 

10 great songs though. This guy is a talent. 

Easily sitting in my top 5

    • Don't know what to make of that one. Not bad. 
    • That one is okay, but doesn't have me rushing to pre-order.
    • Hahaha the video is sad. Agree with the comments above, it must be his first ever video. Only the drummer looks cool in the video. That said, the most important thing is the song..and it is a very nice song. Ya again as you guys mentioned the chorus could have been better coz the verses are perfect but it is what it is...I ll take it.
    • No, it's definitely not. For the record, though; looking beyond what the media jams down your throat, I don't personally find him misogynistic to a degree that offends me at all; I sure as hell don't find him to be racist (seems like it's the go-to tag for someone who might just call a thing or two for what it is from time to time). As for being a liar... probably true, and that's different to absolutely zero politicians in all of history. Anyway, I agree... not the time or place. I actually hate politics and rubbish political discussions. But I hate the media more and I hate just going along with an opinion without thinking about it for yourself even more than the media!   
    • I can't for the life of me understand how someone can have any time for  a misogynistic, racist c*nt, who's a pathological liar, with so many skeletons in his closet that a plague burial ground would look threadbare in comparison. It has nothing to do with  sheep mentality. It has to do with having sound values in life.  But, we'd better leave it there, because this isn't a politics forum.     
    • Phenomena - The Complete Works (3 CD) The Answer - Raise A Little Hell (2 CD) The Answer - Revival (2 CD) Black Star Riders - The Killer Instinct (2 CD) The Amorettes - White Hot Heat Circle II Circle - The Middle Of Nowhere + 1 Crystal Pistol - s/t
    • Agreed. But if you have a view that makes you look really stupid and is something to be embarrassed about, probably best just to keep it to yourself and sing about vaginas instead. For example, if you follow a religion the worst thing in the world you can do, imo, is publicise it... especially in a song. It just makes you look stupid.  In. My opinion, of course. But it's the same with that stupid Kryptonite song, which is preaching to forsake all sense of logic and just allow every human being into everywhere. Australia only has 25 million people? WHAT?! Even though you can't move in the fucking place, let's let everyone in and have 50 million by the week's end!!! says mr singer of Kryptonite. Well I never had an issue with the guy at all in the past, but now I look at him different - in an irritating, stupid kind of way. Anyway, to each their own. Everyone's got their own view n' stuff, but it just seems to sound even more stupid in a song if you have a view that is very polarising.  As for my percentage on who has a problem or not with Trump... I agree. I probably did get that wrong. Much more than 50% of people are sheep and follow what their favourite celebrity or the media is telling them without actually thinking for themselves. For the record, I don't really have much of an opinion on Trump because I don't care enough about it all to get involved. But I definitely like him more than I dislike him and think the outcry against him is just a pathetic banquet of sheep falling over themselves to fit in. Personally.
    • 50 % (50+ even!)have no issue with Trump? Seriously doubt those numbers, but ok, then the lyrics shouldn't bother them either. It only bothers those who like him, I would say.  The arts is a great way to express ideas, ideals etc. Artists shouldn't censor themselves just because some might disagree.  To only listen/read/talk to stuff/people you agree with is stupid.
